Critique my Mustang!

Can anyone please give me a critique of my 17 year old mustang gelding? If you can give us some weaknesses AND strengths that would be ideal.
I've spent the past 5 months trying to get him into shape and I think he's turned into a pretty fine horse. :)
The pictures aren't the best, because he was more focused on eating than squaring up.
In the first picture he is on uneven ground, but it was the best picture I could get

I like him. Good bone (don't you just love those mustangs and how hardy they are?), nice legs from what I can tell, nice short cannons in the front, well porportioned with good LS joint placement. I can't really say anything about his head/neck though because he's eating ;)

He also looks like he MIGHT be butt high to me, but it looks like he's on a downhill slope in that first picture?

Overall a very solid, very cute all-arounder type horse! Whats his name?

Everyone in your life is meant to
be in your journey, but not all of
them are meant to stay till the end.

Here's my go at it
Pasterns are nice and short, cannons are a good length, he has good bone, his back legs are sickle-hocked. I'm not quite good enough to hazard more with these pictures... lol. I was thinking the same thing- he may be downhill a bit, but he's on uneven ground, so I'm guessing that he's level to very slightly downhill?
Overall I agree with Endiku, he's a very solid, sturdy boy. Love him! :)

:) thank you!
His name is Arrow.
he's made me fall in love with mustangs!
They're so hardy and easy to keep healthy, and they are so versatile and spirited. :)

He was sold to me as a Quarter Horse x Morgan, but I did research on his brands and it turned out he's a mustang from
The Navajo nations.
I thought he was a QH until I found out otherwise!
Thank you :)

he is built almost exactly like my qh/arab cross. Sturdy bone, a little chunky, shorter hip but still good, excellent hock angle, great pasterns, strong topline, powerful shoulders. Honestly if he was a sooty palomino I would think you stole my horse! So of course I love him!
